Be certain the transfer case selector isn't in the neutral position. I've seen this a few times...Good luck!

All of this is usually removed at once the way I know of to allow more room to remove transmission bolts etc. Start by marking all hoses, lines and electricial connectors. then disconnect. Next find all mechanical connections, in example; connections from transmission to shifter and exhaust. Find suitable connections for engine hoist to lift motor. Keep in mind you will need to balance the transmission, but, it will be much lighter than the motor. Find and loosen motor and transmission mounts. Start lifting motor with engine hoist and remove connections to mounts as needed. When you are doing this be sure to stay out of possible pinching areas where you can be pinched or squashed by shifting weight. If you havent done so, I would remove fan and radiator because they can be easily damaged. From there lift the engine out, most likely it will take a little push and shove. Just be careful and you will get the job done!!!

It sounds to me that the rear and went out. Crawl under your truck and make sure that your axle is still connected to the yoake. It would be kind of obvious cause if you'reU-joints break your axel would be laying on the ground. Your rear axle has a plug in it. Remove the plug stick your pinky him to the hole and downward trying to see if you can feel axel fluied. If you cannot most likely your ring and pinion is locked up. If you do feel oil pull your pinky out and look at it see if there is metal shavings in the oil. Good luck.

The speedometer on my 1985 chevy scottsdale was recently change and now I have a leak from where the O ring is at the transmission. what is it that I need to do to stop the leak ?? Please advise.

In order to stop the leak, first you need to determine why it's leaking. To do that, you need to remove the cable from the fitting and remove the speedometer gear from the transmission. To remove the gear is easy...just unbolt it and pull it out but mark its position so you can put it back in exactly where it was. Make sure the "o" ring is intact and not pinched and that the seat for the ring is clean. Do not use silicone or any sealer when putting it back together. If it gets into the unit, it can cause major problems. Don't bother trying to use glue etc on the outside....all that will do is make a mess and it won't stop the leak.

96 chevy tahoe, transfer case making noise such as chain slipping

Fluid Should Be Checked Just The Same As Engine Oil. Should Be Changed At Least Once A Year For Proper Service & Reliability. Should be Driven 10 Miles A Month In 4 Hi To Keep Lubricated. I Drive A 1975 Chevy K10 PKP FullTime 4X4 NP203 & A 1980 GMC Jimmy Lock-Outs 4X4 NP205, And I Drive Them Once A Month At 55 MPH For 10 Miles (On Pavement). Keeps The System Lubed Up & Moving. Have Done This For The Last 15 Years I Have Owned Them. KEEP THEM SERVICED. Low Oil Is A Transfer Case Killer. Also Put The Correct Type Of Fluid In, Each Transfer Case Takes A Different Type Of Fluid, Call Dealer Shop For Correct Fluid Type. Some Take Dextron III Or 10-40 Engine Oil Depends On Transfer Case.
